No other holiday can provide such a uniquely American experience. Being in the USA on Fourth of July can be wonderful and exciting anywhere. Here in the south, be sure to experience The Fourth in our tradition! A couple of things you will want to accomplish to be sure!
Watch the Peachtree Road Race!
Hold a sparkler
Have a picnic with fried chicken
Sit on a porch decorated with red, white and blue bunting
Run in a potato sack race with your host children
Ask what the fourth of July means to Americans you have met in your Au pair year.
On this night with fireworks soaring and families gathered on red and white checkered blankets, you will see in their eyes a sense of pride and respect. Pride in a country where being free is everything…… and respect for all those who give themselves to protect that freedom.
